To claim the subsidy, they need to have a valid Aadhaar Card, PAN Card, Passport, or a Driver’s License. He or she is eligible to avail of the FAME-II subsidy only once per category of electric vehicle (2-wheelers, 3-wheelers, 4-wheelers).
If the customer has already claimed the subsidy for an electric 2-wheeler, then he/she will be ineligible for claiming the subsidy a second time. Verify the invoice for the electric 2-wheeler they already own – the invoice will mention if they can claim the subsidy or not.
